Raksha Bandhan celebrates the unmatched bond of love and care. In fact, this bond of brother and sister is just another form of a long-lasting friendship. Both the brother and the sister eagerly await this day. As the markets are full of varieties for rakhis, getting confused amidst such beautiful designs is inevitable.
Astrology says that the colour we wear has a lot of effects on our personality as well as our aura. Wearing a colour on the basis of our stars helps make the cosmic energies positive and favourable. It leaves a major effect when that particular colour is received as blessings or as a gift from a loved one.
Here we have brought to you the information on what kind and colour of the rakhi we should choose to tie on the wrist of our brothers based on their zodiac sign. Take a look.
Aries: Mar 21 - Apr 19
Aries is dominated by the planet Mars. And the lord of the planet is Mangal Dev. Red colour is associated with Mercury. Thus, a red-coloured rakhi should be chosen for your brother if he is an Arien.
It will help make his life more active and vibrant. You can also choose a saffron or yellow-coloured rakhi as well.
